How To Use Video Marketing In The Era Of Short User Attention Spans leads this week’s “Video Marketing Weekly.”

Short User Attention Span

As usual, this week the Video Marketing Weekly has excellent articles that will help you with your video marketing content. Read them, and then try them for yourself when you make your next video!

This week, we have a great lead article from our compilation. It is titled “How To Use Video Marketing In The Era Of Short User Attention Span”.

The featured article in this week’s Video Marketing Weekly describes how brief the user attention span is for your video campaigns. If you want to figure out how your video content is performing on the social platform than you have to know about short user attention span.

We have written about this years ago, so please review this post from 2016 – it’s more true today than ever.

Not every viewer who clicks on your video will watch to the end and become a buyer.

That’s okay. You don’t need 100% attention span from everyone. You simply need the people who are actually interested in your product to keep watching. But you have to make it appealing enough that those who self-identify as potential customers will actually know the video will interest them.

So if your business is determined to keep producing short and quality video content with the short user attention span, you might think to hire a professional. This is especially true when you think about how a user attention span helps get your video to the right viewers.

Say it quick, say it well – the attention span of a modern content marketing.

The author says, ‘we are we’re living in a scrolling society’. So you have to attract a viewer with the very first frame of the video. There are so many videos out there to view, you have said it quick and precise. He uses a great example using a cooking video.

So, the length of the video is extremely important for your video marketing campaign. Your video’s length will help them decide whether they will find it worthwhile to sit through it all.

If you have decided to start a video marketing campaign that incorporates a short user attention span, give us a call. We would be delighted to put our more than 36 years of short and precise video production and content marketing expertise to work for you.

We have a great deal of practical experience in helping companies in producing just the right video content to motivate their target consumer. Our experience in both video and business has advanced our reliability. We should be your first and last stop. We’re the professionals in aiding businesses that wish to get their video content marketing efforts right.

Use of Videos in Property Marketing is the Subject of the Lead Article in This Week’s “Video Marketing Weekly.”

video in property marketing

This week we have another great compilation of articles about the use of video marketing on the internet.

The lead article this week is titled “3 reasons to use video in property marketing.”

Have you considered the use of videos in property marketing? To give you the understanding of what you can accomplish when creating property videos, video marketing is yet another way to do this.

This article is written by an author from an Australian video company, but the principle applies to the US as well. He or she is right in saying that showing videos in property marketing is a growing trend and can really help sell homes.

Video has quickly become a vital marketing tool for businesses of all kinds. It is the quickest way to share information. It’s not just fast, it’s emotional and convincing. In this article, the author shares 3 reasons to use videos in property marketing. He also explores how we can attract more buyers and sellers for our businesses.

Using Videos to Advertise Real Estate – Videos in Property Marketing

We must admit that we disagree with the author on one point. When he or she says “I like to include a mini agent-vendor interview where necessary, and also include some narration from the agent throughout the video. This is where the agent can really delve into the main drawcards and create immediate attraction from the browsing buyers” we are not in agreement.

We think this is a bad idea for creating an appealing video for the property. Using agents to do narration looks amateurish – because it is. If you want the video to look and sound great, have the agent write the script to include important selling points about the property. But have a professional narrator add his or her voice.

The only advantage of having the agent do the narration is to pander to the agent. For the video company, this may well get future video production business from that agent. But it’s not aesthetically correct.

Videos in property video marketing are one of the best ways to appeal to the potential customers. Poor video marketing methods can turn off a buyer or seller just as soon as they see it.

Whether you are looking at doing videos in property marketing or not, we would be delighted to put our more than 3 decades of video production and video content marketing expertise to work for you.

So be sure to let us know if we can help you set the targets and strategies for your live video content marketing.

We have lots of practical expertise in assisting companies in creating just the right approach to motivate their target consumer. Our experience in both video production and the business world. As experts in aiding businesses aiming for terrific video content, we should be your first stop.

Success with Live Video is the Subject of the Lead Article in This Week’s “Video Marketing Weekly.”

success with live video

Live video streaming has become an influential force in the world of digital marketing. Live video helps you to get in touch with your audience in real-time. It allows you to interact with your audience and be able to become a part of the conversation with them– live.

This is an important part of any content strategy.

The lead article this week is titled “2018 State of Social Report – Success with Live Video”.

This article says success with this tactic yields some very interesting insights. While success with live video is not easy to accomplish, it seems from their article that success does not depend on the frequency of  output. They conclude that success with live video seems to come from the relevance of content, something we have always maintained.

If you want to appeal to your audience, you need to have a clear idea of who they are and what they want. This applies, whether you are looking for success with videos that are webcast live, or pre-recorded and edited ones. See our earlier blog post on the topic

“Live Video is a Growing Trend”

As per this “State of Social Report 2018,” its use is growing year over year. Their research is based on interviews with over 1,700 social media marketers. Live video is six times more effective than non-live videos according to reports published by Facebook. By using this technique, you share your face, your voice, expressions and answer questions live. This builds confidence and creates an environment of transparency.

A word of caution, however. Live video is not an efficient medium if you only have a small audience. It can take a very long time for a small company to ever get traction, if at all.

While you can post a recording of the video later, the impact and novelty of live video is best expoited when you have lots of clients (or potential clients) watching live.

When you integrate live video into your sales and marketing process your customer gets what they want – if you give it to them. So live video has become one of the most effective ways to stand out and connect with an audience. It quickly conveys meaning and emotion.

Whether you are looking at doing live video or pre-recorded ones, we would be delighted to put our more than 3 decades of video production and video content marketing expertise to work for you.

So be sure to let us know if we can help you set the targets and strategies for your live video content marketing.

Quality Video Content is the Subject of the Lead Article in This Week’s “Video Marketing Weekly.”

Quality Video Content

Video is a powerful storytelling tool. It is an incredible way to create new and interesting ideas and information. Quality video content drives viewers into deeper, more satisfying relationships 0between your brand and its audience.

If you are a just a beginner, here are some terrific tips for starters.

The lead article this week is titled ” 5 Tips for Creating Quality Video Content Even If You’re Clueless How to Begin”.

This article focused on the area of self-promotional live-streaming videos. However, the principles are the same for creating quality video content with pre-recorded video. To have a successful video, you always want to define your audience and give them what they want. We emphasized that the failure to define your audience was the #1 mistake that dooms video projects.

Keep Your Video Short.

Shorter videos can lead to more complete views, which Google and YouTube love for SEO. But more importantly, it suits our busy lives, brief attention spans and the need to consume content easily and quickly. If every live-video content is in 10- to 15-minute chunks, you should know precisely what you want to talk about. If you want people to watch your videos, especially more than one, keep them short.

About 75 Million people in the U.S. watch online videos every day. By 2019, internet video traffic will account for 80% of all consumer internet traffic. So, If your content doesn’t grab their interest within first few seconds, then there is probably no chance they will continue to watch or read what you have to say.

If you have decided to make quality video content a part of your business marketing plan, give us a call. We would be happy to put our more than 3 decades of video production and content marketing expertise to work for you.

How Video Marketing Influences Your Customers’ Buying Decisions – in this week’s Video Marketing Weekly.

Buying Decisions

This week, we have an interesting lead article from our weekly edition. It is titled “How Video Marketing Influences Your Customers’ Buying Decisions.”

https://www.webtrafficthatworks.com/how-video-marketing-influences-your-customers-buying-decisions/The article is pretty much right on the mark. We agree with the concept of creating favorable emotions in your viewer. People, regardless of their culture, location, or age can react very strongly to emotional stimuli.

However, what is not addressed in the article is that viewers have very short attention spans.

If you do not reach the viewer in the first few seconds of your marketing video, they won’t be watching long enough to develop the emotions that you are trying to elicit.

The situation is just like a newspaper headline that captures the attention of readers.

They quickly decide whether it is worth their time to read the rest of the article. Basically, the reader is making a “buying decision” as to whether they want to “s[end” their time reading further. Similarly, our video must capture the attention of viewers during the first few seconds of the video. If not, the viewer will be moving on to something they perceive as more interesting.

Get creative. Think outside of the box.

People using smartphones watch at least one video every day. Marketers rate video as the most effective content marketing method. We agree with this thought that most consumers say that watching product or service videos make them more confident in their online purchase decisions.

When you decided to create a video for your business the first thing you need to ask yourself is, “how am I going to make them feel?”

If you have decided to make creative video content a part of your business marketing plan, call us.

We would be happy to put our more than 36 years of video production and content marketing expertise to work for you.

We have a great deal of practical experience in helping companies in producing just the right content to motivate their target user. Our experience both in video and in business has advanced our reliability. We should be your first and last stop.
